Finally Focused Music Group
The Taj Mahal is regarded as one of 8 great wonders of the world. So, its no wonder that one begins to compare the complex elements and longevity of this architectural masterpiece to that of the lyrical wonder-"TAJ MAHAL."
TAJ is becoming a familiar name within the realm of hip-hop. Born in Milwaukee and living throughout the Mid West, TAJ spent most of his years between Brooklyn, New York, as well as, upstate New York: Rochester and Syracuse. Although, TAJ began to rap at age 14, about 5 years ago is when he began to take rhyming seriously. So he honed his skill and began to pursue music full-time. Real rap fans can recall when TAJ spit raw talent on his first mix-tape appearance; Hot 97/Mix-Tape DJ Green Lantern's mix-tape entitled New World Order. "
Based on the buzz I got from my first mix-tape feature with Green Lantern; I saw an opportunity to go hard with rap. At this point I realized I had something different to offer: content, ideas, creativity and knowledge." - TAJ decided to put out his own mix-tapes: The Senate 1, 2 and 3 mix-tapes. TAJ and his crew; the Senate have put out 11 mix-tapes to date; All Original Tracks and won Upstate mix-tape awards. With no record deal or label; he promotes his own CD's and music career. "I don't expect a label to do that for me!" It is his natural born hustle and polished flow which gives rise to his introduction track "Hustle Or Flow." This track depicts the real life dilemma in which many artists may face; whether to hustle in the streets or give up this lucrative art in order to commit to a career in music.
With such influences as Kool G Rap, Eric B/Rakim and one of the greatest story tellers in the game, Nas it's not a surprise that TAJ MAHAL is a versatile and creative artist. TAJ shows this as he is able to flip to his love story "My Everything" produced by Kanye West; 45th and Broadway featuring Jim Jones and long-time friend Juelz Santana.
